Handy Graspable Dishes

The Holdaplate Makes it Possible to Clutch Food and Drink in One Hand

— April 17, 2013 — Art & Design
While at a cocktail party, you might find yourself juggling your beverage and your hors d'oeuvres each time that you can greet other people politely. The Holdaplate by John Zox is a welcome culinary concept that's been designed specifically for this scenario.

Providing sufficient flat surface on which to place a number of different munchies, the salver has a rounded edge with a rim to keep items from rolling off. What you will have remarked straight away is that the cocktail plate is asymmetrical, and it's this one groovy edge that makes it so handy.

You can hang onto the Holdaplate securely between just two fingers. This leaves your thumb available to wrap around any sort of wineglass or cup, while the curved side of the crockery assists your grip.
